The crew of the Shuttle Pod sat down with writer/director/all around brilliant guy James Kerwin, of Star Trek Continues fame to talk STC, honoring the vision of Star Trek TOS, space cartography, and more!

The latest episode of STC, “Divided We Stand”
Jared noticed a familiar musical cue in the latest episode of Star Trek Continues, “Divided We Stand” (above), prompting him to ask about how much thought and care goes into getting the details of TOS, like musical cues, set lighting, costumes, etc, right on the money.
We also talked with James about what the Star Trek universe actually looks like. What does a map of our galaxy, in the landscape of Trek, really look like on paper? The authority on this issue is of course the awesome Stellar Cartography book by Trekspert Larry Nemecek, which you should all go out and buy right now. It sells for $47.99 on Amazon.
